Captioning Terms and Technologies

This website provides some common technologies and terms that apply to captioning with various media players. "On the web, the primary multimedia technologies are Microsoft's Windows Media Player, Apple's Quicktime, RealNetwork's RealPlayer, and Macromedia Flash. Unfortunately, there is no fully standardized mechanism for captioning across these technologies. Each media player handles captions differently."
